Monsters Inc. Party Food Ideas

Serve snacks with monster names like "Wazowski Wafers", "Sully Sandwiches", and "Boo-berry Smoothies".
We all scream for ice cream! Set up a sundae bar so guests can personalized their "screaming": snack.
Serve healthier snacks that look like monsters. Put googly eyes on Clementine oranges, put a chocolate chip in the center of banana slices to make one-eyed monsters, and use other fruits with blueberries for eyes. Toothpicks with eye decorations can help decorate your food for a freaky look.
Create a green and blue fruit and veggie tray that will match your Monsters Inc. party decorations. Serve foods like green grapes, celery, broccoli, and peppers. Purple fruits like grapes and blueberries also match.
In Monsters Inc., Mike and his girlfriend go out to a sushi restaurant. Serve up simple suhi with foods kids will enjoy. Rice, seaweed, cucumber, and egg rolls are simple to make and have flavors kids are used to. Mix and match ingredients to give your sushi platter some variety. You can also make pb&j rolls to match the sushi idea. Simply spread peanut butter and jelly on one side of crustless bread and roll it up. Slice each roll into pieces for a sushi style.
